    Shopping for Eggplant

    The tastiest eggplants are heavy (for their size), glossy, and firm to the touch. Store them inside the vegetable crisper for up to 4 days and make sure to eat them before the skin starts to wrinkle or become soft.

    Nutritional Info

    Like many other ‘vegetables,’ eggplants are in fact fruit. In addition to enhancing the taste of many dishes, eggplants feature vital nutrients, low calories, and high fiber—all which assist weight loss. They are rich in Vitamins C and K, manganese, folate, and potassium. They also contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.

    Taste Profile

    The mild taste and spongy texture give eggplants maximum versatility, and they taste fantastic whether stuffed, baked, grilled, broiled, sauteed or steamed.
